Table description

State budget expenditures are divided between 13 ministries and 19 other institutions. Each of these entities (also referred to as a budget chapter, ministries refer to as departments) is an independent legal subject and has its incomes and expenditures. Sum of these expenditures creates the state budget. General Treasury Administration has a special position among the ministries, it is not a typical ministry, does not have an appointed minister but for its management is responsible Minister of finance. From an accounting perspective this institution is the recipient of all tax income and its spending budget has a cross-sectional nature eg state debt interests or contributions into the EU budget. The state budget is approved annually by the Parliament based on the Government's proposal. If the expenses exceed the revenues, we talk about the deficit of the state budget.
